  1. Hey Bungy - is there any straightforward way to enable SSH management of the MySQL container (by adding credentials into MySQL Workbench) so that I can edit some MySQL options. Also, what's the best way to make a change to the cnf file and have it persist? I remember trying before and losing the setting when the container restarted, and kind of gave up there? Thanks in advance!
  2. Hi - I am running a P2P 10Gbe ethernet connection to my main PC, writing to the Array via (NVME) cache hits full speed (716MB/s), but reading from the cache or an unassigned NVME drive gives me full speed for a few seconds, dropping down to about 16MB/s, where it will then fluctuate up and down bouncing between 10 and 100MB/s. I have set the MTU to 9014 on the server and client, this didn't make a difference, iperf gives me solid results too and from the server too so more inclined to think it's client side (Windows 10), however other PCs on the 1GBe network demonstrate similar behavior.I have tried Direct IO on and off and even messed with variations in NIC settings in Tips and Tweaks: Flow Control: Off NIC Offload: On NIC Rx Buffer: 4096 NIC Tx Buffer: 4096 I have also bumped the receive buffer up to 4096 on the client PC, tried jumbo frames off and on etc....the client PC has an NVME drive and the write speed tested gives me 1800MB/s. Any ideas on where else I can look please, it's bugging the hell out of me after investing heavily in getting these speeds up!
  3. Hey guys - just looking to narrow down my search, I want to sync my photos to a shared folder on my main PC, but I want my UNRAID server to do the work. There are a few sync apps in the appstore, any recommendations. I have been trying with no success to get Duplicati to backup to OneDrive so trying a different tack, share a folder on my PC in the OneDrive folder and sync this with my URAID share. Any other suggestions to help this use-case welcome, just want to secure my photos so I can sleep soundly at night!
  4. Thanks for your commitment, have donated since this is pivotal to the purpose of my server, the price of a round of drinks seems well worth it in my opinion.
  5. For the EAP controller, I had this working but now I am seeing an error about apgrading...looks like it is prompting for some input but I can't console into it, any ideas on how I might fix this please? Nov 11 12:59:04 FILE-SERVER syslog-ng[2702]: EOF on control channel, closing connection; *** Killing all processes... *** Running /etc/my_init.d/ Config exists, importing previous configuration! *** Running /etc/my_init.d/ Upgrading local packages(Security) - This might take awhile(first run takes some extra time) Preconfiguring packages ... Setting up util-linux (2.27.1-6ubuntu3.9) ... Configuration file '/etc/cron.weekly/fstrim' ==> Deleted (by you or by a script) since installation. ==> Package distributor has shipped an updated version. What would you like to do about it ? Your options are: Y or I : install the package maintainer's version N or O : keep your currently-installed version D : show the differences between the versions Z : start a shell to examine the situation The default action is to keep your current version. *** fstrim (Y/I/N/O/D/Z) [default=N] ? dpkg: error processing package util-linux (--configure): end of file on stdin at conffile prompt Errors were encountered while processing: util-linux E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1) Upgrade Done.... If it helps I found another person having this issue: "I could avoid the problem changing these lines: `FROM phusion/baseimage:0.10.2` and: apt-get upgrade -y -o Dpkg::Options::="--force-confdef" && \` and I think the second option -o Dpkg::Options::="--force-confdef" id the solution. It seems that the package was updated and the configuration file has changed. With that option we let the package manager decide what to do without asking. It probably writes the new config file. I'm not sure which package is using util-linux package. I'm going to close it but probably there is a good solution."
  6. Ok, well new agesa installed (ABBA), still seeing this issue. The NVME is used solely for 3 Windows VMs and I have notices no issues with running them. Not really sure if this error is anything to worry about or not...the VMs are in a production environment so I need them to remain error free and stable, is there a risk to my machines or their data with this error? Here's what I am seeing at the moment (device 04:00:00 is the NVME drive on its own IOMMU group 21:[c0a9:2263] 04:00.0 Non-Volatile memory controller: Micron/Crucial Technology Device 2263 (rev 03)): Sep 30 13:00:09 FILE-SERVER kernel: amd_iommu_report_page_fault: 1516 callbacks suppressed Sep 30 13:00:09 FILE-SERVER kernel: AMD-Vi: Event logged [IO_PAGE_FAULT device=04:00.0 domain=0x0000 address=0x00000000fe507000 flags=0x0000]
  7. Looks like there is a new BIOS for my board, AGESA Patch ABB that solves PCI/IOMMU issue for some people, might give that a go first and report back (there is no current firmware upgrade for the NVME drive).
  8. Hmmm, found this - possibly related?
  9. Hi guys - looking for a bit of advice on how to check what the problem here is. I thought i had a shutdown (the VM I left running looks to have restarted), a quick check in the logs gives me repeated incidences of this message: "Aug 14 09:00:06 FILE-SERVER kernel: nvme 0000:04:00.0: AMD-Vi: Event logged [IO_PAGE_FAULT domain=0x0000 address=0x00000000ffc75000 flags=0x0000]" and mixed in with these are: "Aug 14 09:00:07 FILE-SERVER kernel: amd_iommu_report_page_fault: 1617 callbacks suppressed" I am running new hardware, Ryzen 3900x on Asus x570, and the NVIDIA UNRAID version - the offending hardware is my Crucial NVME SSD running under unassigned devices, it is inside it's own IOMMU group and doesnt share this group with any other devices: "IOMMU group 21:[c0a9:2263] 04:00.0 Non-Volatile memory controller: Micron/Crucial Technology Device 2263 (rev 03)" Looking back I can see this is appearing in the logs since the new installation, but am now at a bit of a loss on what I can do, any advice or guidance would be appreciated!
  10. Have been an avid user for a few years now, tried out Freenas and Esxi in that time too and nothing comes close. The community support has answered every question I've had, and the plug in range has increased 4 fold in this time too. Thanks Unraid, don't know where I'd be without you!
  11. Gahhh - I have changed the config of MySQL and now it wont start. SO i think i have a catch22, i cannot edit the config file unless the docker is running, but it boots out and stops because of the issue (I set lowercase table names = 1 but there are uppercase tables in the DB) Any ideas on how to fix this? [edit - turns out the changes weren't upgrade safe, forced an upgrade and now back up and running..] though, any ideas on how to make cnf changes that stick?
  12. Ok - so I checked out the USB stick on another machine, turns out recycle bin drops deleted files into another folder, I copied them back and aside from some jumbled characters in the command line while booting it seems ok. Now to upgrade to the latest....
  13. ...I can't boot! I deleted the plugins-old-versions contents (from what I remember) as it was throwing a lot of errors when booting on files in there. Thinking they were old and I'd be ok i removed them, stupidly not making a copy of the drive first. I was running 6.4, have I any hope of recovering this or do I re-install, rebuild the array and start from scratch? Any suggestions appreciated before I make a start!
  14. On researching this further, it looks like the way to set this up is to continue to use your regular 1gb LAN connections for the internet etc, and supplement this with a direct peer to peer 10Gbe connection to file servers etc, giving a level of failover. Cards are pretty cheap right now so i'll give it a go!
  15. Hey, so I can see support for iSCSI is not going to be a feature anytime soon, though I cannot expand my Dell R610 beyond the 6 2.5” bays, so I have purchased a bargain SAN fully populated with drives. So now I think I face installing my UNRAID as a VM under FreeNAS, or adding a VM to UNRAID and using Openfiler. By the looks of things, FreeNAS is catching up in terms of feature set, supporting docker and VMs, though I love the fuss free interface provided by UNRAID so I’m a little torn! If if I choose to just use Openfiler, is it possible to mount the iSCSI VM volume back to UNRAID so it can be managed the usual way, or will it have to be separate and handled solely via Openfiler? Would like to keep this as simple as possible. Lastly, perhaps it is possible to add ISCSI by installing custom drivers and trying to manage via command line? Any suggestions appreciated, with how cheap this old fibre channel gear is going for (£55 for 16TB dell Xyratex SAN) perhaps we could think about the opportunity here for UNRAID, so many people point this out as a dealbreaker when comparing UNRAID to FreeNAS?
